Posted on Sep 28, 2020 by Kieran Vaughn

This first installment of the America Makes Future of the Supply Chain Q&A interview series involves a discussion from industry leaders on the additive manufacturing industry’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Follow John Wilczynski (Executive Director, America Makes), Michael Shannon (Senior Manager, Hewlett-Packard), Lou Rassey (CEO, Fast Radius), Cullen Hilkene (CEO, 3Diligent), and Terry Wohlers (President, Wohlers Associates, Inc.) on an in-depth discussion, and stay tuned for future videos in our series.

 

Talking Points

  1. Digital manufacturing and 3D Printing equipment has unlocked incredible value in the ability to rapidly produce and scale.
  2. Digital design and collaboration very quickly allowed for the exchange of ideas, information, and products — showing real world cases of the Industry 4.0 “future” happening in our current supply chains.
  3. The PPE shortage exposes both good and bad things about 3D Printing technologies that allowed for strengths and weaknesses of the industry to be seen and better understood by the world.
